Get More: Ask Ausiello, Spoilers

blog_aa_11.19.13_v3Got a scoop request? An anonymous tip you’re dying to share? Send any/all of the above to askausiello@tvline.com

Question: Mike, Mike, Mike… What can you tell me about NCIS‘s 250th episode? —Marsha
Ausiello: Marha, Marsha, Marsha… I can tell you that someone from Gibbs’ past will resurface around the time of the CBS phenom’s landmark episode. Sources confirm to me exclusively that Susanna Thompson is set to reprise her role as Jethro’s ex, Hollis Mann, this January. And, show boss Gary Glasberg, teases: “She is coming back in an unexpected way.”

Question: Any info on Grimm? Specifically, on Juliette and Nick? —Veronica
Ausiello: Not so much on the reunited lovebirds, but I can tell you about one of the vet’s past infatuations: Capt. Renard is planning an extended trip overseas. Maybe that’s when he’ll first see Adalind’s baby bump with his own eyes?

Question: When is Nashville‘s Scarlett going to get over her stage fright? –Anne
Ausiello: Looks like that’s going to be a two steps forward/one step back process – and star Charles Esten tells TVLine that this Wednesday’s episode will find Deacon and Rayna arguing over what’s best for the new Highway 65 artist. (Deacon thinks the tour is too much, too soon for Scarlett.) “She’s my niece, she’s [Rayna's] protégé, so we’re fighting over her almost as a proxy of how it might be to battle [over Maddie],” he says. “And in a real sense, we’re both right.”

ncislaQuestion: Any scoop on what Deeks will be up to (and with whom) while Kensi is off on her mission to Afghanistan? —Jan
Ausiello: First off, it hasn’t been officially confirmed that Kensi is, in fact, hopping a plane to the Middle East. Let’s see what exec poducer Shane Brennan has to say on the subject. “Kensi and Deeks face their biggest challenge, both professionally and personally in coming episodes,” teases the boss. “The emotional ripple that started with their unexpected kiss at the end of last season is about to turn into a tsunami that doesn’t just impact them, but the whole team. As a result, one of them will be reassigned.” OK, now it’s officially confirmed. (I think.) Now here’s a Bonus Scoop to make up for the fact that I totally side-stepped your original query: I have uncovered fresh intel about the new tech officer being played by Bones’ Andrew Leeds. Per sources, his character, Booker, is a member of a special task force hunting down an elusive terrorist.

Question: Got any Mad Men scoop for me? –Derek
Ausiello: Yes, just for you — but don’t tell anyone. Elisabeth Moss says that even though the cast is currently shooting the series’ final season, life behind the scenes at Sterling Cooper & Partners is pretty normal. “It’s hard to get too sad about it when you’re just at the beginning,” she tells TVLine. However, “The whole thing has more significance than it usually does. It can’t not. You treat everything with a little more significance. We were doing this thing like, ‘It’s the last second day!’ and ‘It’s the last first read through!’ That will go on for a little bit, and then we’ll probably forget about it.”

Question: Any scoop on Season 2 of Devious Maids? —Fernando
Ausiello: With the “Who killed Flora?” mystery all wrapped up and Marisol’s true identity as a college professor revealed, Lifetime’s guilty-pleasure sudser is restocking its pantry, so to speak, by casting three new domestic workers and one wealthy head of a Beverly Hills household — all of them series regulars, and all but one of ‘em sexy males. Nicholas is described as “a handsome, charming Latino” businessman/philanthropist in his 40s and (brace for a possible hint at Season 2′s central mystery in 5, 4, 3, 2…) a man whose first wife “died under mysterious circumstances.” Opal, his Caucasian, 40something maid, has been in his employ since his previous marriage, and she’s a secretive, conniving woman “reminiscent of Mrs. Danvers from Hitchcock’s Rebecca.” Wait, did Mrs. Danvers have a hot, naughty, dark-haired son who just turned 18 and works as a pool boy? Because Opal does, his name is Ethan, and he’s the third of the Season 2 cast additions. Finally, there’s Tony, a dark, swarthy, European hunk in his mid-30s with a Special Forces past and the athletic physique that goes with it. The macho man will find work as a bodyguard/chauffeur.

Question: I am really loving The Tomorrow People. Scoop?! —Vanessa
Ausiello: This Wednesday’s episode is the show’s best yet, according to leading man Robbie Amell. “It shows this lighter side of Stephen even though things really kind of go to hell at the beginning of the episode,” explains the actor, before adding that the hour will offer fans a glimpse of “what the show is going to be about for the next 14, 15 episodes… We introduce Jedikiah’s boss (played by Spartacus‘ Simon Merrells). You get a lot more backstory about my dad and John and Jedikiah. We further the storyline about trying to find my dad in present day.”

emily_elizabeth_graceQuestion: April won’t really marry Matthew on Grey’s Anatomy, right? —Mary Kate
Ausiello: Would she drag all three of her sisters to Seattle if she was going to leave him at the altar?! ‘Cause sources confirm to me exclusively that the Dec. 5 episode of Grey’s will feature wall-to-wall Kepners — specifically April’s sibs Libby (played by Days of Our Lives‘ Emily Happe), Kimmie (Drop Dead Diva‘s Elizabeth Bond) and Alice (The Middle‘s Grace Bannon). The trio are in town for their sis’ nuptials, which may or may not go off without a hitch. (Prediction: There’s a hitch or two, but the wedding will happen.)

Question: Nikita‘s final season starts in just a few days and I need some reassurance that we’ll get some decent Nikita/Owen interaction in these last six episodes. Reassure me, Aus! —Caroline
Ausiello: I would. If I could. But, alas, I can’t. “There are only six episodes [left] and there’s so much that Nikita has to run from, wrap up, come to terms with, triumph over — and none of those things really have to do with Owen,” star Maggie Q shares with a laugh. “I don’t think there was any room for [their friendship].”

Question: Orange Is the New Black is amazing. Scoop on what Season 2 holds for us addicts of the show? —Kathy
Ausiello: More Poussey — including her very own origin episode. “We’ll get a whole episode about her backstory,” shares the inmate’s alter ego, Samira Wiley. “Lots of things about [that installment] are surprising, but in a good way.” Season 2 as a whole will place additional emphasis on Poussey, shedding light on “her morals, her alliances and what her loyalty is like. [She'll] also have scenes with people she hasn’t had scenes with before.”

Question: I was wondering if anything new is known about Season 3 of Girls? —Erin
Ausiello: This just in, Erin: It’s going to be polarizing! But perhaps you were looking for something a little less obvious? We caught up with fan favorite Zosia Mamet at this week’s 29th annual Artios Awards in NYC to find out whether there’s any hope for Shoshanna and boyfriend Ray, who ended Season 2 with an ugly breakup that found her ambitious college student telling her older boyfriend she loved him in the same way she might feel sorry for a caged monkey. (Ouch!) “It gets a little bit worse before it gets better – that’s what I’ll say,” Mamet teased, before revealing that Shosh’s doorman dalliance was “just a onetime thing” and will not be revisited in Season 3. Instead, the actress adds, she wound up mostly working with the show’s core cast for Girls‘ upcoming crop of episodes (returning Sunday, Jan. 12 on HBO), including some regulars with whom Shosh hadn’t interacted previously.

Question: Do you have any scoop on Lisbon from The Mentalist? –Laura
Ausiello: Only that the end of the Red John storyline may — I said, may — be the best thing to ever happen to her love life. When asked if Jane and his No. 1 gal will retain have a strong bond once the dust has settled after this Sunday’s big showdown, Simon Baker says, “Absolutely — and I think even stronger.” As show boss Bruno Heller explains, Jane and Lisbon over these five-and-a-half seasons “have been so engrossed in this massive task ahead of them that they haven’t really looked at the people alongside them and… thought about what they mean to them. But now, they [will] have a chance to take a breath and think about each other in a way they haven’t before.”

Question: Is there anything you can tell us about The Mentalist and life after Red John for Jane? —Shena
Ausiello: Actually, there’s something I can tell you and there’s also something I can show you. First, I can tell you that there will be a significant time jump between the Red John finale this Sunday and the beginning of Mentalist 2.0 on Dec. 1. Now, let me show you what the the new woman in Jane’s life — the mysterious Kim Fischer (played by series regular Emily Swallow) — will look like when she first appears in the aforementioned Dec. 1 episode. Check out the exclusive image below and then hit the comments with answers to these two questions: Why have we heard so little about who this woman is? Who do you think she is?

My Blue HeavenQuestion: Is it true? Carrie Preston’s doing another episode of The Good Wife? —Joshua
Ausiello: It’s true! “I got permission from HBO to do one last [episode] before I go back to work [on True Blood],” Preston tells us. “It’s not that they don’t want to support me; it’s just a contractual thing.” Storyline-wise, the Emmy winner insists she has no idea what brings Elsbeth back into the fold. Seems like a safe bet that she’ll get caught in the middle of the war between Team LG and Team FA though. “That would be tough for her,” concedes Peston, although… “I think she can play both sides of things. Wherever she’s needed, that’s where she wants to be!”

Question: You are a person of great interest and I would like to know if your Blind Item is about Person of Interest? —Aaron
Ausiello: I see what you did there and I’m mildly amused by it. No, the actor getting killed off POI this week is not the subject of my Blind Item. But while we’re on the subject, Carrie Preston — who recurs on the CBS drama and is married to its star, Michael Emerson — warns viewers to stock up on the Puffs Plus. “It will be very sad,” she confirms of [SPOILER'S] swan song. “It’s going to be sad for everybody — not just the fans but also the cast. But I think the way [the show] is handling it is quite remarkable.”

Question: Can you give Banshee some love? The series back in less than two months! —Adam
Ausiello: I strongly encourage you to refresh the hell out of TVLine’s homepage Thursday because at some point between 9 am and 6 pm EST I’ll be posting the Cinemax hit’s first Season 2 trailer. And it will Blow. You. Away. In the meantime, I offer you two tantalizing tidbits courtesy of exec producer Greg Yaitanes: “Season 2 is going to begin about a week after Season 1 left off” and “The finale of Season 2 is the best thing I’ve ever made.”

That’s a wrap! Please send questions, comments, and anonymous tips to askausiello@tvline.com. (Additional reporting by Vlada Gelman, Meg Masters, Kim Roots and Michael Slezak)

  • Oh, that was something… Unpleasant. To be honest, this page is inapropriate and I can’t except that into any website. Please be aware I am not trying to hurt anyone’s feelings, but my mom told me this was the right thing to do. Report.

    This isn’t good for the internet. Morals, maybe? Thanks a lot.

    • What ? I didn’t read all the tidbits, only the ones for the show I watch. But I have been reading Ausiello since …I won’t say, I don’t want to feel old. I can’t believe there is anything written in this colomn that can be considered innapropriate by any standard.

    • What do you consider inappropriate (I didn’t see anything wrong), and the internet does not revolve around your morals. Sorry if I sound harsh, but if something offends you on the internet it is your responsibility to remove yourself. Not relevant, and I don’t think I’m a spelling nazi, but the only word I cannot stand being misspelled is “accept.”

  • Please don’t tell me they are killing off Bear on Person of Interest?

    Comment by Linda – November 19, 2013 04:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Oh – you know what, the whole over the top media build up to this impending death on person of interest, and the incredible openness of the producers about it, has always made me wonder if its all a big major in-joke. It is reminiscent of the ‘frozen donkey wheel’ thing in Lost. Bear would fit the bill perfectly. This is my new favourite theory.

      Comment by ben – November 19, 2013 04:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s not Bear. He’s been seen filming new episodes in the last week or two with Michael Emerson.

      Comment by kel – November 19, 2013 04:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Got any other spoilers on who won’t die, kel? (of course, the one thing about Bear is – the character can die… and the “actor” can come back as a new character? Seems unlikely though)

        Comment by ben – November 19, 2013 05:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Its not Reese, Finch, Shaw, Bear or Root. Although that shouldn’t be much of a shock. I do know who it is.

          Comment by kel – November 19, 2013 06:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • you are doing well. I haven’t been able to track it down at all. Basically, though, you’ve narrowed it down to being – clearly Elias. (why must it be Carter or Fusco? *sigh*).

            Comment by ben – November 19, 2013 07:17 PM PDT  
          • I think it sucks that Carter gets killed! She is one of the original. Is there a reason for her departure from the show? I don’t think that I’ll continue to watch it without her.

            Comment by Diane – November 20, 2013 05:17 AM PDT  
  • What? No Arrow, Glee, Vampire Diaries, Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie, Agents of SHIELD, Bones, Castle, Blacklist, 2 Broke Girls, Big Bang Theory, Once Upon a Time or Supernatural scoop? I’m very disappointed this week!!!

    • It’s easy to name shows that don’t make the list. There are at least 100 prime time shows out there; not every one can make the list or be everyone’s favorite. There’s only 2 or 3 of these scoops I’m interested in each time. Not a big deal, imo.

  • If April and Matthew get married on Grey’s I’m guessing he’ll die the next episode. That’s how Grey’s rolls.

    • No, no. They’ll have her realize she really does love her husband and doesn’t need Jackson and THEN he dies as he heads to meet her so she can tell him that.

      Comment by jalahyacitnh – November 19, 2013 07:28 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Why would she need to tell him that she doesn’t need or love Jackson and that it’s him that she loves?! Marriage pretty much says that, no?

        Comment by Cátia Oliveira – November 21, 2013 11:01 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Nah, she’ll just have an affair.

      Comment by murley – November 19, 2013 08:08 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • What is so sad is that any of these comments are totally plausible. Why not just have April realize how much she loves Jackson still before marrying Matthew? You should never marry someone while still being in love with someone else, even if Jackson supposedly doesn’t love her it’s dumb to just have her marry Matthew because he is the consolation prize.

      Comment by cas – November 20, 2013 05:38 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Well she did her “part” concerning Jackson, she told him that she wanted him and he clearly made her understand that he wasn’t interested in that (even if he is in my opinion, but he’s just too proud). So why should she be alone for the rest of her life now? Doesn’t she have the right to look for happiness? Yes Matthew may not have been her first choice and she may not love him the way she loves Jackson, but I truly believe that she has feelings for him. She’s just trying to move one, like so many people do in life…she’s decided that she can no longer wait for someone who doesn’t love her. Except Jackson totally loves her, so he’s the one to blame in my opinion!

        Comment by Cátia Oliveira – November 21, 2013 11:10 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Of course she will get married… and then probably cheat with Jackson on her wedding night or something… That’s what Shonda likes.

      Comment by Liz – November 20, 2013 09:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I don’t really believe that they will go down the road of adultery with April. I mean after all the Jesus story that would just be lame in my opinion and non realistic for the character, but I can be wrong…who knows.

        Comment by Cátia Oliveira – November 21, 2013 11:12 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • An episode centered on April??!! ugh! I’ll definitely avoid or fast forward through this episode. One more reason I’ll “discharging” from Grey’s at the end of the season.

        • No code necessary–she’s signaling the mother ship. Considering how long she has written this way–they not only aren’t answering, they don’t want her back–*SIGH* :)

    • “Sources confirm to me exclusively that Susanna Thompson is set to reprise her role as Jethro’s ex, Hollis Mann, this January.”

      ^- I thought this was announced here on TVline weeks ago? I even remember McGee being mentioned there, not sure if it was because Mann would return being involved, surprisingly, with him instead of Gibbs… Or maybe I’m getting confused with something else :?

  • Sad day. Only one bit of news I cared about (news on April). I need to start writing in and asking about the many shows I want information on. More Once, Revenge, HIMYM, Hart of Dixie, Mindy Project, Revolution, Arrow, Reign, Agents of Shied, Pretty Little Liars, Covert Affairs, Psych, Once in Wonderland, Baby Daddy, and Suits pretty please!

    Comment by A – November 19, 2013 04:46 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’m assuming you wrote in to ask specific questions about those shows. Or did you just expect others to read your mind and do it for you?

      Comment by Aeol – November 19, 2013 06:05 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • You are totally right. I didn’t ask this week so that’s what I get

        Comment by A – November 19, 2013 06:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I’ve been writing in and writing in –at least 3 letters, asking for asurance that Fusco isn’t dead; maybe I’ll find out when I watch tonight, but I didn’t want to have to wait. I rad all the items “titled” POI and Spoiler, but no word. the anxiety is taking what few years I have left (I’m a very senior citizen. Bot fair. I post here and also send emails to the address to which we’re supposed to send them. I’m glad to read here that it isn’t Bear, but shall I get out my tissues to bemoan Fusco.
      We’ve taped the show so I guess I’ll soon find out.

      Comment by Cindy – November 19, 2013 09:26 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

    • I agree. To me, Alex and Nikita are the heart of the show, not the relationship. I know the CW pressures them to focus on Mikita, but I hope they don’t forget what made the show work in the first place.

      Comment by Josh – November 19, 2013 07:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Alex w/Nikita was fine for Season 1, Mikita for Season 3. In the end, it should be Alex & OWEN!!!

  • I may be in the minority on this one, but I’m totally looking forward to seeing what happens with four Kepners together on Grey’s. I really love April, and I’m not ashamed to admit it.

    • I like April a lot! The hate she gets is kind of ridiculous, she’s no more annoying than anyone else on this show. I have a feeling one sister will probably be just like her and the other two will be the complete opposite. I’m pretty sure her and Matthew won’t make it to the altar though, she’ll either be a runaway bride, or he’ll be a runaway groom or something will happen that makes the wedding get cancelled.

    • Perhaps she’ll be his new therapist. He’ll need one to help him work through the grief he never faced because he was intent on revenge. Maybe she’ll help him open up to Lisbon in a way he never has before and then he and Lisbon can become even closer.

      • I like the way you think, zaza. I thought she was there to recruit him as a consultant for the FBI. But I suppose she could be a therapist. Sort of doubt it though. Why promote an FBI therapist to a series regular? A profiler? Maybe. But how to include a therapist in a weekly whodunit? She and Abbott are probably both field agents somehow. We know he is. He’s the boss, Cho is part of his team, I’m assuming, Jane is recruited to be a consultant. How Lisbon gets into this scenario is what I’m curious about. Isn’t she supposed to be in Washington with a police job there? I want to see how she gets back involved with the FBI and Jane. I’m glad to hear their bond is stronger now and interested to see where this thinking of each other in different ways leads to.

      • I had the crazy thought that she MIGHT be related to him in some way… maybe a sister? It sounds as if there is some kind of connection, but I’m sure it’s in no way romantic… The Jane/Lisbon dynamic is too far advanced to push anyone between them- it’s pretty clear where things will be going ;). And I think it’s time… at this point of the show and after catching Red John, Jane and Lisbon should absolutely get together.

      • Honestly, I’m not surprised. After the backstory they gave her last episode and how she phoned and said goodbye to her kid before going to get the warrant I expected it to happen last week.
        Definitely sad, because I was always hoping for something to happen between her and John, but hopefully the show will go on smoothly without her.

      • I think it HAS to be Carter – they did that great retrospective, showed her saying “good-bye” to her son, etc.  I hate to see it, too, but it makes sense that HR takes her out.  (Good thing it’s not Bear or there would be trouble!)  hrh

        • It’s easy to say “It HAS to be Carter” after you know that it is/was! In truth, however, that’s the LAST person it should’ve been!!! Reese & Finch each have the other to cover for their loss (In addition now to Shaw). Meanwhile, the only person around to replace/fill the spot left by Carter is who already takes a literal ton of ability away from every scene he’s in!!

      • It’s not extreme for me. TPH and JC were the reasons I tuned in. I don’t like Amy Acker or Root. So if Carter is gone and Root stays I am done. I will watch the next epi because they said it was a three parter after the winter hiatus I won’t come back. Whether I watch or not doesn’t matter, I don’t have a Nielson box.

          • Carter was a good character but the integral players are recce and finch, the show won’t die from the loss of her character, shed some viewers most likely but clearly there are other stories to be told.

            Comment by john – November 20, 2013 07:31 AM PDT  
        • I just think the amount of story they’ve built over the years is worth watching to the end regardless. You have your own opinion and thats cool, just think its worth watching after the mid season break for an episode or two and see how the story pans out. Then again its my favorite show so i’m more than a little biased.

          Aye I don’t affect the ratings either.

  • So we know Alex and Owen have lots of scenes in the final season of Nikita, that’s been said previously. And now we know there isn’t much Owen/Nikita because there “wasn’t time”.

    So we can start complaining about the shoving of the pointless out of nowhere instant relationship between Owen and Alex down our throats now without people telling us to wait and see? I’m not talking about romance either, I don’t care if they’re platonic the entire time. Their relationship is based on 2 episodes of significant interaction, as opposed to two seasons of Nikita and Owen. That there wasn’t time for them but there’s apparently time for Owen/Alex is complete and utter crap.

      • I gave up on getting decent Alex and Nikita scenes last season. The writers have lost site of what made this show so great and unique in the beginning. Now it’s just another generic CW show full of terribly written romance. I used to adore this show, and I need to see the end of the show so I can get closure, but I’m so happy it’s ending and that they only got 6 episodes. There’s only so much more damage they can do to these once great characters in 6 episodes.

    • Fischer is a FBI agent originally from Texas. She will be sent to South America to find Jane and offer him immunity from prosecution if he returns to the US and becomes a consultant for the FBI. No one involved with the show has said anything about her being a romantic interest for anyone. They only have half a season left to explore the Jane-Lisbon relationship. I don’t think they’ll go the love triangle route.

  • I watched NCIS with Bishop last night. I don’t understand why this season keeps having such hard turns in it. Ziva’s send-off was weak, quick, harsh without a lot of really good explaining. There could have been a much better send-off for her than what they did. Then there’s the issue with Bishop. Let’s just ram her right down everyone’s throat and make her a regular. I’m one that I need proof that she’ll make a good change to the team. One episode does not cut it for me. She might eventually win me over, as I did see some promise in her character, but I don’t know about long-term. And I don’t care that she is/was NSA with a joint assignment to NCIS. Yes, lots of new story line possibilities. But from a “life” perspective, what a slam it would be to any seasoned NCIS agent who could possibly “win” an upgrade to be on Team Gibbs, only to be out done by someone with only 4 years with NSA. And I know one thing, if they don’t call her Probie… I might just join Ziva… Somewhere else.

    Comment by LeeAz383 – November 20, 2013 06:35 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well NCIS was struggling in season 10 to come up with decent storylines that included Ziva and very nearly destroyed itself with the revenge arc at the end.
      Ziva’s send-off was weak because it had not be planned, was written in a rush and because de Pablo was only available for limited scenes. My personal opinion was that they wasted an opportunity with her having resigned at the end of season 10, they could have just had her gone in season 11 with a couple of comments explaining it between the rest of the cast.
      But they felt that they wanted to ‘please’ the long term Ziva & Tiva fans – most of whom seem to be especially ungrateful for what they got.

      As for Bishop, this episode was all about introducing a brand new character; of course it was going to be fairly heavy on her. There should be more of a balance in future episodes. What matters in her becoming a regular is how she has meshed with the rest of the cast, and the reports from the set are positive. If it had been left up to the audience to decide, then Ziva would never have become a regular character.
      Not every show can please every viewer, it seems that NCIS has a bunch of viewers who liked it’s original style, something that changed dramatically over the Ziva years. Other viewers preferred what it became. This season has gone back more to the feel of the earlier episodes. Viewers that like that are happy, some who stopped watching are delighted and watching again, more recent viewers and those who particularly liked Ziva are not happy.
      Which audience deserves to be listened too? And there is no point saying “the largest” because it is almost impossible to quantify – fans that have been claiming to speak for the entire audience have been shown up as a tiny percentage of viewers by all of this.

      I have respect for the viewers that evaluate where the show has gone, decide it is no longer for them and quietly stop watching. The ones screaming that they don’t like what is happening to the show nor do they like the new girl – and that they are going to stop watching if things don’t improve to their liking – are just telling the world that they think their view is more important than anyone else’s.

      • Your respect is not required. Site moderators allow people to voice their opinions on shows, even the negative ones or “farewell / goodbye show that I will not be watching” posts. No one needs to stop watching “quietly” –feel free to have your say, just obey the moderators and don’t call people names. We are here to discuss tv shows. No one’s opinion is more or less valid than the next. People can express displeasure with a show’s direction.

  • I’m glad Susanna Thompson will be reprising Hollis Mann because she did a good job with a difficult character, but watching her knock it out of the park on Arrow as Moira Queen just emphasizes how badly women on NCIS are written, from Kate to Jenny to Ziva to Abby.
